, victor, a u.s. official tells cnn the fbi was investigating a tip that david petraeus was involved in an extramarital affair with paula broadwell. she is his biographer. broadwell spent a year with petraeus in afghanistan interviewing him for the book she co-wrote about him. it's not clear whether broadwell is the woman with whom petraeus has admitted to having this affair that led to this resignation. the official says that the fbi counterintelligence unit investigated the tip to see if there was a potential security risk, whether petraeus could possibly be blackmailed. the official tells cnn there was no suggestion the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing, but the concern, rather, was that he might be putting himself in a vulnerable position. >> we know that a lot of the questions from online that i've read, some of the comments on cnn.com, there's questions about the timing. let's start with what it comes after, the presidential election. what if we found out about that connection, if any, and why this comes just days after the election? >> reporter: well,
terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us now from capitol hill with the very latest. what happened today, dana? >> reporter: wolf, it was one thing for susan rice to be criticized harshly yesterday by the three republicans she met with because they had been among her harshest critics, senators graham and mccain. today's meeting was different because she met with a republican who was among the remaining centerist republicans in the senate -- one of the most likely to throw susan rice a lifeline. it didn't happen. >> i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role at the height of a contentious presidential election campaign. >> reporter: after meeting with rice for more than an hour, collins emerged questioning her judgment in giving the public what turned out to be incorrect information in the days after the deadly attack in benghazi. and the main republican was lukewarm about the prospect of rice as secretary of state. if president obama
unprecedented growth of incarceration. >> this just in. cnn is reporting that president obama will win connecticut, delaware, the district of columbia, maine, three out of four electoral votes. romney will win oklahoma, in addition to what we have announced so far. we are going to turn and go to vermont, where we are joined by david, an independent journalist. he also happens to be my brother, but it is the first state in the country, vermont, that has been announced as going into the obama column. david, welcome back to democracy now!. it did this not happen in 2008, as well? >> yes. hi, amy. vermont was called within moments of polls close in, leading many of us to wonder what the methodology was, but in any case, we did just get the first numbers, and that is why happened with 2% of the precincts, with 70% obama and 28% romney. cbs has also called the races here for senate for senator bernie sanders. this is his reelection to the second term, and for the governor, and also the congressman peter. you are priced out of the market because there is no cap. there is no control, so becaus
accepted my resignation. let's get right to our cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly. pretty shocking information from all we know. what else are you learning? >> right. well, wolf, i don't think i can emphasize what a bombshell this was yesterday. in the letter that was sent to employees at the cia, this is the first they were hearing about what's obviously been going on for a while. and of course while we can't ask general pa traeurs what's going on, there are a few more nuggets that he sent out to the workforce today. he quoted teddy roosevelt when he said one of life's greatest gifts is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. these are petraeus's own words. he said i will always treasure my opportunity to have done that and i will always regret the circumstances that brought that work with you to an end. so as you reported, wolf, as we now know, he's stepping down as director. he's held it over just a year now, head of the cia, because of an extramarital affair. >> who is the acting director going to be? >> it's going to be acting director who has been the forme
